Dier thrilled to share first England with Tottenham mates

Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier was thrilled to share his first international goal for England with his club mates.

The 22-year-old scored the winning goal from a header in injury-time to clinch an impressive come-from-behind 3-2 win over Germany in Berlin on Saturday.

Dier, along with Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Danny Rose, formed a strong Tottenham contingent in the Three Lions squad which was well-received by the match-winner.

"That is one of the best feelings I've felt in football so far," said Dier after his first international goal.

"It was amazing. To be able to score for England is great, let alone here in Germany.

"It was fantastic. And to do it with all my mates from Spurs was even better.

"I feel comfortable in the team, but it's not just down to the Tottenham players.

"Obviously that helps, but all the boys make everyone feel very comfortable and it's a young team in general, with lots of energy and optimism.

"It's not just the Spurs lads, there's a lot of lads in there who play with the same aggression and optimism we do. It's always better to win than to lose and that's always more optimistic, but we have to keep our feet grounded.

"It was a great win, but it's a friendly and there will a lot harder tests to come and we have to keep working."
